't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen

, missouri, with more for us now. claudia? >> reporter: well, jenna, the snowstorm has pretty much moved on but it is still a snow day for the kids and tough going out on the roads. not so much on the main highways or the city streets like this one here in downtown kansas city, but more in the residential neighborhoods and on the side streets where the plows really haven't had a chance to get in there and push all of the snow out of the way. as you mention the roads were an icy mess throughout the region yesterday. a lot of slipping and sliding. not a lot of serious crashes because people were out on the road and poor visibility made it hard for drivers to go very fast. those out and about today need to be careful especially if the streets are lined with the large snowdrifts. they might want to have a snow shovel with them. it was a very dynamic storm with snow, freezing rain. what the national weather service calls thunder sleet. lightning really lit up the skyline overnight and temperatures in the 20s over the next few days means all the heavy snow will stay put. farmers certainly hope

be released. yet 83% of americans said they supported the president's use of drone strikes. i'm wondering is there any public pressure to be more transparent? is that going to happen now? >> that's really interesting. i mean, you cited that poll, 83% of folks agree with the drone program, its use at least overseas. there's a difference if this is used on our soil here, certainly no backing for that among americans, but so far you haven't seen the outcry of a public outcry in terms of this program being used to target americans overseas. i think this is the first big public airing of this issue that we've seen. we'll see obviously brennan take it up today and perhaps after that you'll have americans raising some concern, but so far there has been bipartisan concern i think on the hill. it hasn't extended to the american public, and even in some ways you have had a situation here where republicans have been the fiercest supporters of this program. some folks saying what about democrats also being in the president's corner if this was bush doing the same thing? would they have had a differen
